Thanks; yeah, relative to what I was just talking about in the Apr thread for 69--they played at least 15 shows that month alone, which makes sense in terms of your numbers (ie, 150 for the year!).

the jerry site lists a total of 1381 shows for known solo jerry.this does not include shows prior to 1968.it's a rough estimate could be more but i wouldn't think more than 1800.still add that total to the dead total and it's a lot of time onstage.

This is what is said at the Beginning of the Taper's section at dead.net:

In this space, every Monday, you will find information on the recorded history of the Grateful Dead’s music as it pertains to that week, specifically focusing on the shows for that week, through the band’s 30 year performing history, that reside in the Grateful Dead’s storied tape vault. Although not everything is in there, with more than 1,600 of the band’s 2,400-odd shows represented, there is plenty about which to talk. Check back weekly for new entries and insight into the vault, as well as exclusive audio clips relating to that week in the Grateful Dead’s recorded history.

That would seem to indicate that there aren't that many more than what is present in setlists.net. It is actually pretty impressive that they have such a good count of those early years.
